Dog Car Seats, Should It Be A Law To Buckle Up Your Pet?

We as drivers understand the importance of wearing a seat belt while driving, and currently just about every in the United States requires you have it on when driving. Why is it important to wear a seat belt? If a car is moving down the road at 50 mph hits another car or object, your automobile will stop moving forward but everything inside unrestrained will continue moving in the same direction at 50 mph. The result is equivalent to falling out of an 8 story window.

In recent news, there are a number of other automobile safety concerns that have been making headlines. The two biggest driving safety concerns headlines have been about the dangers of talking on a cell phone and texting while driving. A huge spotlight has been put on these driving hazards and even companies and celebrities such as Nationwide and Oprah have campaigns warning people of these dangers about texting while driving. Now there is a new report and study conducted by AAA that illustrates a new driving danger that should concern all pet owners.

Click it or ticket is a catchy phrase that is used to remind us to fasten our seatbelts when we get in our cars, but that is only for humans, and as pet owners know that is not always the only occupants in our cars. AAA knows this and has conducted a study that warns us of the dangers when our four legged friends are along for a ride. AAA is reporting that driving with pets is a dangerous distraction if they are unrestrained. Recent research data supports the fact that having an unrestrained pet in the car can be as dangerous as texting or talking on the phone while driving. Not only was this report released by AAA but the story was picked up and reported on by CBS news along with a video.
